The Lake PTA (Parent Teacher Association) would like to welcome new families and welcome back returning ones!  We’re looking forward to another wonderful year for staff and students!

Our first opportunity for parent involvement is assistance with Back To School pictures.  Please sign up here if you are able to help us on August 21, 22, or 23.

Very soon we will be posting sign-up sheets for Birthday Club (volunteer to bring a treat in for a teacher or staff member on their birthday)

Remember to stop by the PTA table at the 6th Grade Parent Night on August 22 and the 7th/8th Grade Parent Night on September 13th or the 7th & 8th Grade Welcome Back Event on August 23rd to ask questions and to find out details about other events and opportunities this year. It’s always nice to meet other parents!

National PTA

The National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is the oldest and largest volunteer association working exclusively on behalf of all children. It was founded in 1897 in Washingon, DC to better the lives of children.

The mission of the PTA is threefold:

1. To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children
2. To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children
3. To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of this nation.

The purposes of the PTA are:

1. To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship
2. To raise the standards of home life
3. To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth
4. To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth
5. To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education
